Sunday could be family day. I’m sure it is in many homes but we have two teens left at home and they are working now, so Sunday is “let’s go do something day” and they don’t necessarily want us, old folk, tagging along.

EMT graduated this year, after four years on the Honor Roll.  It was an eventful day, with his stalker making her presence known and him finding out that his supposed work phone (from his previous two week odd job, heping a friend) was actually provided by his stalker and he was being tracked with a GPS tracker on it. My Army grandson says, “Stalkers can be fun, for a while.”  We are now past the fun part and to the “Let’s go talk to the Brown County Prosecutor on Monday and see about a restraining order.”

Thanks to one of President Obama’s stimulus packages, and Governor Mitch Daniels use of it to put low income youth to work, my boys are making a decent summer wage. That is not to say it is easy. Nope, they are putting these guys through their paces, but being ex-farmers, it’s no biggie. I can tell because, after hauling rocks one day and  6×6 timbres for hours the next, these ex-farm lads came home and went to bed at 6:30pm.

They work together, which we worried a bit about in the beginning.  EMT can be overbearing to his brother at times.  But, now that EMT has discovered that his ex-friend is helping his stalker, his brother is more important to him and EMT and JRock are hanging out together. JRock’s girlfriend’s family has inherited two more children as the boys like to hang out on their more “farm/horse” land. Yesterday it was a Twilight party. The girls watched the movie and the guys went out to the ‘man room’ after the first half hour of Twilight.

To finish my farm boys update, here are pictures of JRock performing:

This is him singing and playing guitar, with Jane on the base, at the Muddy Boots Café in Nashville, Indiana.

And, this is him singing, on stage with a group called the Suede Saddle. We took Mom to this concert. She loves their music and turned to me, at one point and said, “I want all those ladies in front of us to know he’s my great-grandson.” I told her I thought the very large digital camera I had pointed at him was sort-of giving them a clue. Unfortunately, I do not hold that camera so steady any more.

Recently, okay, not that long ago but in my mind it is well ‘lucid’ (which my relatives often say I am not.).   I bet the punctuation is way off in that sentence.  Please excuse me, my unknown future and wonderful agent.  Anyway, I remembered this post from Lucid Dreaming for Slackers ? Cranky Fitness.

 

 

I have very vibrant dreams, and occasionally hallucinations.  Last night Irritating little Chihuahua woke me up and, instead of her, I saw a black “other animal” (I said the dreams were vivid not the memory) sitting up and begging against the back of the couch.  He was a lot larger than the Chihuahua, who was by this time on the floor.  I gotta lay off the Melatonin.

 

 

We were having dinner with JRock’s girlfriend’s parents Saturday night and she had the DVD of Twilight. I’ll get to the point, in a minute.  You know that scene where she wakes up and the vampire guy is in her room and she blinks and he isn’t.  Like he wasn’t ever in her room, but he really was there all along?  Well, that is my life. 

 

 

It is my night actually.  Sometimes, a swift image of a person is there. At times, I wake up and see clumps of black things dancing around near the ceiling.   I am sure it is some medicine I am on, perhaps combined with Melatonin.  It really doesn’t scare me any, so I haven’t bothered reading the inserts to see what is doing it.  Remember, this is the woman who found a rare earthquake great fun. 

 

 

I did try the Lucid dreaming note taking for a few days but it takes time and I have enough to do right now.  My former violin teacher had dream diaries that covered years.  He swore by the method.  He said he had great control of his dreams and could direct them.  My goal would have been to be able to control some dreams, like to be able to fly more often in dreams.  That is cool when it happens! 

 

It would also be neat to control who is in my dreams.

 

So, what I want to know—my burning question is: 

 

Why do I keep dreaming about Nicholas Cage rather than Viggo Mortensen.  If I have to have a vivid dream guy dream, I want it to be Viggo.
